I love my new traditional '18. I have some questions/possible issues. 1: does the toggle switch get loose over time and starts rotating? I found that mine got loose even after tightening and the switch ring won't even stay aligned and keeps moving. Even the pointers on the pots are a little loose and I don't have a wrench that will get in there. 2: The volume/tone knobs are acting weird. There is no effect on volume/tone at pointer level 1. Faint noise can be heard when the volume knob is at 1.5 but it's doesn't have any character/sounds like it has a loose connection or something. A nice rolled off volume can be heard at 2 position on the pointer. Is something wrong with my pots? Also there's some cracking before I turn it off completely. 3: What are some 'first' OD/Distortion pedals that you recommend for a nice smooth drive?
